TAKE YOUR COMMERCIAL / INDUSTRIAL ROOF TO THE NEXT LEVEL

There are several reasons to consider upgrading your business’s roofing system: Improve the life expectancy of your roof, protect your occupants/contents, lower your energy consumption, reduce your carbon footprint and reduce your overall expenditures in the long-run.

WHITE MEMBRANE

  • Reduces building heat-gain, as a white or reflective roof typically increases only 5–14 °C (10–25 °F) above ambient temperature during the day
  • Creates 15%–30% savings on summertime air conditioning expenditures
  • Enhances the life expectancy of both the roof membrane and the building’s cooling equipment

THERMAL UPGRADE

  • Firestone ISO polyiso insulation offers high-energy efficiency
  • Highest R-value per inch versus other insulation materials
  • Outstanding installed cost advantages
  • Proven fire resistance

FULL TAPERED SYSTEMS

  • Can be designed to offer varying degrees of drainage
  • Most often used in retrofit applications and roofs in new construction where structural slope is not possible
  • Lessened life cycle costs, R-value and perimeter height restrictions
  • Common slopes used are 1% and 2%

PERIMETER TAPER SYSTEMS

  • Economical method to shed water away from critical areas at parapets, walls and mechanical units
  • Consider widths between 4’ and 16’ with a minimum slope of 2%

SKYLIGHTS

  • A well designed building with a good spread of natural light will benefit from passive solar gain and a reduced requirement for artificial light
  • Including skylights can offer a dramatic reduction in a building’s total energy consumption and the emissions of CO2 associated with this energy use
  • A naturally-lit interior will save money, provide a more pleasant environment where people want to spend time
  • Savings from skylights can cut lighting energy use by up to 75% – 80%
  • Potential eligibility for federal, state and local tax credits

WALKWAYS / PATIO STONES

  • A rooftop walkway system offers a non-slip surface for ease of serviceability to rooftop units
  • Whether for building inspection, maintenance or any other purpose, a rooftop walkway or patio stone layout can help to prevent users from encountering unsafe conditions
  • Durable, easy to install and flexible to fit with any roof
